“Dissapointed”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

We visited this restaurant with friends we were staying with and who had always had good meals there previously.
Unfortunately they did not recognise any of the staff from their previous visits so maybe it has changed hands ?
Mussels were not available. We all decided to go with the rump Steak , Chips and Salad. Two steaks were to be well done and the other two Medium.
When the steaks arrived they looked great on the top but were really thick and the underside not cooked at all. Three plates were returned to have the steaks cooked some more but i did not think my steak was too bad to start until i really got into it and saw how raw it was but was too late to send it back.
Eventually the other steaks were returned cooked much better than before but by then i had finished my meal (apart from the steak i left ) and the chips that were returned with the recooked steaks were not nice as they had dried up.
Shame because we were looking forward to this meal.

“Good restaurant with decent selection of dishes.”
Reviewed 19 August 2013

Only ate here once as preferred Phare West. Nothing to dislike though as food good, service good and staff friendly it is just Phare West does it better. It was always busy so go early or reserve a table. Prices just above average for the town but as mentioned food good. They do tend to pack people in and although we were OK many customers were continually moving/standing to allow people to pass, not ideal half way through your meal. Would go again if unable to get in at Phare West.

Third time of visiting La Tranche, yet again service and quality of food was excellent. We will certainly be visiting this restaurant again.

“Great mussles”
Reviewed 17 December 2012

Through the summer the bowls of mussles are wonderful, as is the steak and chips. Good service and great spot in central La Tranche.
